This training course has been initiated and developed under the auspices of the DCED, in response to a lack of a specialised course focusing on Private Sector Development (PSD) in fragile and conflict-affected environments, and driven by demand in the field.
This course provides participants with the tools and skills to design and implement effective PSD interventions in fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS).
Participants of this course will be able to:
Understand the causes of conflict, and how peace-building initiatives seek to reduce conflict and restore stability
Appreciate the role the private sector as a key element in the management of tensions in FCAS
Grasp the relevance of different PSD tools in FCAS including strategic conflict analysis and political economy tools
Apply various analytical tools sensitively and appropriately
Work effectively with different stakeholder groups - in particular the corporate sector - in a constructive fashion
Engage in latest thinking about how to measure and evaluate PSD activities in FCAS
Meet and share their agenda with staff of different donor organisations.
This course is relevant to anyone working on PSD programming in fragile and conflict-prone areas
Conflict advisors, local staff and others engaged in trying to develop the private sector in fragile locations.
